July 1999 – Tim Hills: The female tree, on the left as you enter the churchyard, is split into two. The larger section, next to the road, further divides into two main areas of growth at a height of 6′. There was evidence of fire having damaged parts of this. Considerable low growth covered the bole making it difficult to view. The smaller section revealed signs of new growth wrapping around old wood. Girth was 16′ 10″ (513cm) at the ground.
2010 – Steve Waters: West of entrance. 5.21m (17′ 1”) at 0.2m. Splitting apart, a possible pollard. Ancient Tree Hunt reference 61273. For more information go to the Diocese of Southwark webpage.
